SISC64 Stars & Stripes

It’s been a quiet week for me in bloggyland. I have been super busy prepping for my kidling’s “Very Merry Un-Birthday Tea Party” that is happening on Saturday. Plus, getting ready for the many, many new releases that I will get to share with you over the next few months. Start saving your dough…’cause you’re going to be needing it for these releases!

But I digress.

Today I am thrilled to announce that along with the latest StampInsanity Challenge, We have a couple new Groovy Gurlz! Sammi and my darling friend Kelli! I am so excited to have you not only as a Groovy Gurl, but on Ward 2 with me! Welcome! And for those of you keeping track…this is the third design Team that Kelli and I are on. Yes. We plan on taking over the world. ;)

So this week’s challenge is great! And a few of us took a different spin on it then what most would have expected, I think. The challenge is Stars & Stripes. You’re probably thinking patriotic, right? Well, as you probably know, I prefer the road less traveled. So I opted to not go with the Patriotic theme. Don’t worry! I will have something Patriotic soon! Here’s today’s creation.

I can’t get enough of this sentiment. Especially since it’s Dr. Seuss. And I tried to channel my inner Seuss by using bright, primary colors.

Check out my faboo embossing powder. Turquoise with green glitter! I’m sorry I can’t tell you who it’s from. I got it eons ago and the name of the company is not on the bottle. I added some Waterfall Stickles for some added dimension.

You can click on any of my pictures to see them bigger. So there you have it. Bright and cheery, with an extra special sentiment. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Ward 2 Groovy Gurlz to see their creations. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
